CHRISTIANSEN, HENNING - SATIE I HOJ SO (LP)


"The most enigmatic and rare of Danish artist and composer Henning Christiansen's albums Satie i hoj so is now re-issued by Institute for Danish Sound Archeology and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. The album collects five central works from Christiansen's neo-romantic period in the 1970s. This completely overlooked and virtually unheard period in Henning Christiansen's ouevre contains perhaps his most fascinating and beautiful works. For 10 years from 1969-79 Christiansen turned his back to the art scene and made a very unorthodox artistic decision: To leave behind 'art for arts sake', Fluxus and the concretist art music, that he had invented in the 1960s. Instead he created a music that was a positive vision for the future. A music that would make it 'sing' inside the listeners - and by changing them would change the world. A convinced communist, Christiansen created wonderful joyous waltzes and dancing melodies that set to bring about a revolution - both an inner and an outer revolution - by believing in the good in the world and by having hope for a bright future. Now, with the re-release of Satie i hoj so the music can make it sing inside us again." (label info) 180gr vinyl, with 16 pp. booklet
